I am currently studying SCCB, finished my L1 in IT and I'll be doing my level 2 by September this year, which is fantastic for me. The courses out there are great to my experience, and the work pro-folios are quiet challenging. Students are thought by experience tutors, friendly and helpful; One thing is fun about the College is that, there's no Sir/Madam, so the tutors and students are well integrated.Students are allowed to work on there own, and there is also after classes course help tutors at the Learning Hub (the library) for those who need extra help. The college environment is great and so welcoming. There are computers everywhere within your reach (inside classes,library and even the Student Lounge is well equip with is most modern furniture and fun Gym. I was given a chance to enroll on my course without any formal qualifications; left school well before I get a qualification. Self motivation and preparedness for the future gives me all spirit. I was even one of the best students in my first year. Can't wait to start the second step to my career @SCCB (BTEC L1 DIPLOMA IT).
